Johnny Depp might play Matthew Mellon in biopic
Los Angeles: Late banking heir and businessman Matthew Mellons story could be made into a film.
There are rumours that actor Johnny Depp is interested in playing the role. However, the Pirates of the Carribean star hasn't confirmed doing the film yet, reports pagesix.
Mellon infamously battled addiction after graduating from Wharton. He inherited trusts worth $25 million at age 21 as a scion of the Mellon and Drexel dynasties.
He was in treatment for a $100,000-per-month OxyContin habit. The Forbes had named him in the list of Richest People in Cryptocurrency.
"This may be fulfilling a dream of Matthew's. He would have loved this idea," said a source.
